BRISTOL OLD VIC THEATRE SCHOOL - West Country Tour
By Thomas Hardy

Directed by Paul Chesterton
Designed by Max Dorey
We are delighted to be welcoming back the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, their productions are always a firm favourite here at the Beehive and this will be no exception.
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene. Having inherited her father’s farm, Bathsheba finds herself playing mistress in a man’s world. She is pursued by three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; the handsome and reckless Sergeant Troy; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and obsessive landowner. But are any of them a match for the independent and spirited Bathsheba?
This timeless story of Bathsheba's choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love - as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
